    I am from Ontario, Canada. I sell a kit to make a quadcycle out of two bicycles. See it on my web site, www.thegrannybike.com

    It is my intention to use the "cyclingforums" web site as a place where my customers and others interested in 4 wheeled bikes can ask questions or share their experiences with the Granny Bike kit.

    :rolleyes: GREATEST RACE EVER AND GETTING BETTER EVERY YEAR:
    You can do it with your eyes closed, crawling on your knees, That's how great the support next to the road is. :D :confused: :eek: :cool: :eek:
    BUT if you want to do it by bike ,look for the lightest bike you can afford. Remember every kg or pound multiply by 109 ,will be the weight you carry over that 109km distance. My 1st bike on my first Argus weighed 14.6 kg,, look for something much less. what ever you do : do the ARGUS "JUST FOR THE THRILL OF IT"[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Originally from Oregon , now residing in Northern Cal. Unbelievable rain this year. Think I'll go back to the Palm Springs area! I'm the GM at a top 100 golf course and a PGA Class A. Started riding 2 years ago. Will try sprint triathlons this year. It's a mid-life crisis thing. Looking for riding partners in the foothills around Auburn, CA.

    Hello everyone, my name is John, I live in Palmdale, California, which is part of the Mojave Desert and is located approximately 73 miles north of Los Angeles. I’m recently retired from the Los Angeles, Department of Water and Power after 39 years of service. I’ve recently scraped and washed tons of dust off my mountain bike and plan to get in better shape, ride for relaxation and get out of the wife’s hair. LOL I look forward to learning allot from this forum. Thank you and happy riding.;)

    Hi everybody!

    My name's John and I live in Clarksville, Indiana, USA right across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky. I'm 41 years old and have been cycling fairly heavily for about fifteen years, now.

    I've currently got a Trek mountain bike (4500 Disc), an old Gitane fixie, and a NOS 2003 Bianchi Pista that I've had for about a month. There's also a fairly steady stream of older bikes passing through that I buy and fix up to re-sell, many getting converted into fixies and singlespeeds.

    I've spent a lot of time over at bikeforums.com but am completely sick of the server issues that plague the site and the general hostility that seems to be the order of the day. Went looking for alternatives and found this place.

    Right off I'd like to raise a pint to the hope of brighter days ahead, roads not yet taken, and friends not yet met!

    I'm from El Paso, Texas -- I love commuting and riding for fitness, but gave up cycling a couple of Septembers ago when our friend, possibly the greatest cycling advocate of all, Ken Kifer was murdered by a drunk driver. My little wife has convinced me, and I agree, that some drunk in Alabama shouldn't have that much power over me!!:D I'm Trac, and I'm back!!!

    Tracktorlegs, sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, but happy to hear that your back on your bike. We can't let thoughtless people keep us from doing the things we love, by giving them the power to govern our lives. Rest assured, that someday that person will get what they deserve. Congrats on riding again and enjoy.

    ~John~

    Hi, I'm a first-timer here.

    I'm an IT specialist from Tokyo, Japan.

    I used to ride just for fun, but I ride mostly to train these days. I don't race a lot, in fact, I only race twice or maybe thrice a year, all of which are long (~20-25km = 12-15mi) hill-climb type events. Drafting has only minimal effects on this type of events so my main focus is to improve my 1hr+ TT power.

    To that end, I got a PowerTap SL earlier this year, and have been training with power for about two months now. With a power meter, it's a lot easier to regulate my effort, and I already feel that I can't go back to riding my bike without one.

    Cheers,
